comic sans

a little bit of everything

so, i don't make a habit of watching american idol [in fact i'd never seen it before], but i did catch last night's episode. there was a boy, zachary, on there who was upset that they told him he looked like a girl. like seriously upset. now, this would be understandable if this kid wasn't dressed entirely in a jr. miss get up, but he was and he had a femme haircut to boot. my point? if you wear women's clothing, which is designed to accentuate the feminine physique, you've got no right to be upset when people say you look like a woman.

oh yeah, it didn't really help that he sang whitney houston too.


so, school is really motoring along. you might not believe it, but i've attended like 95% of my lectures so far. the really surprising part is that james mother-fucking boone is what it took to get my ass back to class. [for those of you who don't know james, his attendance record is only slightly better than mine, which is piss poor.]

i can already tell the difference it makes for me to attend lectures. it's not that i pay attention or take great notes, but i do my homework there instead of coming home and promptly forgetting about it. additionally, i find myself participating in class every now and then, which is a pretty big step for me. i used to have a panic attack every time i had to speak in class. now i just kind of do it without even thinking about it [until afterward, perhaps]. plus, i'm developing a rapport with a few of my teachers, which i really enjoy. hell, i just like that they remember my name.
